Flight Three is the third in a series of four limited CDR releases by Lost Winter planned for 2017.
Flight Three (LW012) features:
* Flight Three
* Mini CDR (burned at home)
* A hand-stamped cardboard sleeve
* A song title business card
* An inlay card featuring a beautiful photocollage by Crow Versus Crow which, as well as being a unique work of art in its own right, also forms part of a larger photocollage, the other
quarters of which will be made up of art from subsequent Flight releases (Flight Four will be released in September or October).
Flight Three is primarily influenced by the instrumental Dub remixes of Barrington Levy's music by Henry 'Junjo' Lawes ('Tonight Junjo Presents Heavyweight Dub Champion', Greensleeves Recordings) and Post Punk bands like Gang of Four.
The concept for the Flight series was influenced by stories I'd read about the mysterious fate of certain Sun Ra singles from the mid 1950s. These songs appear to have been released, however, no physical copies have as yet been found. I wanted to emulate this mystery somehow, so I decided to forgo digital distribution in favour of a physical release.
However, I've made one concession by uploading a 60 second sample of Flight Three at:
All Flight releases will be limited to 12 copies.
